Abstract: 
The aim of this paper is to present data to verify the process of mathematization in economic theory. For this we used two representative samples from three of the most in fluential academic journals in the years 1955-56-57 and the years 2015-16-17. Thus, a contingency table was drawn up, showing that the occurrence of mathematical models is not specific to a particular theme, but rather covers all th e economical themes of the cat egories presented, without distinction. Finally, it is argued that there is a rise of math ematical techniques that negatively correlates with conceptual works, causing a theoretic congestion that converges with a problem of legitimacy in the choice of the model for practical purposes.
